☂ all the fun things go by that name

Family & Religion

I went to bed really late and had to get up early. Within fifteen minutes of being awake, my uncle and I were discussing politics. I mentioned that I was happy that Obama repealed DADT, and my uncle was like, "I'm not sure that's a good thing. Because now the soldiers are going to be uncomfortable around them, and the last thing they need is to be distracted."

Me: "I'm pretty sure in the heat of battle the last thing on anybody's mind is, "That is one hot butt.'"

And then I got a half hour lecture on how homosexuality is wrong because God says so. And how wanting equal rights for all is Satan having power over us. I asked him that if God was so loving, why did he hate homosexuals? My uncle talked about how it was unnatural, and then he started saying something about bad things happening to people because Satan had a strong hold on us all and...something. I stopped listening.

Eventually he changed the subject to the bible prophecies that are coming true and the approaching End of Days, which segued into a lecture that there was no way to prove the Bible wrong, that Atheists and others have tried and failed, and that some Atheists/others have even converted to Christianity in their quest to prove the bible wrong.

I listened to him talk and hid my grin behind my hand.

Watch out for those talking snakes, yo. They can be really chatty.

Don't let one talk you into eating any fruit.
